A temporary ‘No Stopping’ restriction will be introduced on both sides of carriageway on the above lengths of roads for the duration of the closure to facilitate the works.  Signs will be installed indicating when the No Stopping restriction will be in force.

The Essex County Council (Braintree District) (permitted parking area and special parking area) (Consolidation) Order 2008 will be temporarily amended to include the temporary ‘No Stopping at Any Time’ restriction and suspend any existing parking and waiting restrictions on the above lengths of roads only. All other restrictions and exemptions contained in the aforementioned Order and Amendments to that Order shall remain in force

The works being undertaken will take place within an 18 month period from 20th February 2017, exact dates will be specified on http://roadworks.org/. The roads will be closed to facilitate each phase and then re-opened to the public. Access will be maintained for pedestrians and emergency services. Diversion routes will be signed at each location and residents will be informed of the dates of each phase via letter / leaflet drop and advanced warning signs on the road. 

Phase one - Pre-surface patching works. These works comprise filling any surface defects as well as removal of cat’s eyes if present.

Phase Two - Micro Surfacing. The process entails spraying the road with bitumen, stone and cement bituminous slurry. The material is left to set as a regulating layer and the process repeated for the final surface layer. After this the road is then rolled, which along with the action of the traffic settles the surface. The road will be swept within 48 hours and after 7 days. This surface will seal the old road, thus preventing the ingress of water which causes deterioration of the road surface and will improve skid resistance.

 Phase Three

a)   Reinstatement of white lines if required. Reinstatement of any road markings.

b)   Reinstatement of any road studs and raising of ironwork.

For all enquiries please contact our Contact Centre on 0345 603 7631

The Order will come into effect on 17th April 2017 and may continue in force for 18 months or until the works have been completed, whichever is the earlier.

Bradwell with Pattiswick Parish Council has been successful in being awarded a grant under the Tesco “Bags of Help” Scheme. The sum of £8,000 has been guaranteed towards the provision of adult gym equipment on the playing field and there is an opportunity to increase this to either £10,000 or £12,000. The young people of the parish have been consulted and overwhelmingly support the provision of an outdoor Table Tennis Table and a Synchrospinner and Sport Disc with the additional money.

To secure this additional £2,000 or £4,000, the Parish Council needs the votes of as many members of the public in Braintree as we can get. We are up against competition from Dunmow and Ongar. Anyone shopping at the Marks Farm Tesco, the Great Notley Tesco or the Town Centre Tesco between 31st October and 13th November can vote.

Please vote for the Bradwell with Pattiswick Parish Playing Field Project – only with your votes can the Parish Council complete these two exciting projects.

The young people and the Parish Council of Bradwell with Pattiswick thank you for your support.
